29 years old, USCF rating 1726. Personal best around 2100 blitz on ICC and Playchess. Around 1800 on FICS (handle: dumbgai). Inactive in OTB competition since 2011. Inactive in all chess since 2013.

I still follow professional chess because I'm curious to see who wins, but overall my sense is that too many people take this board game way too seriously.

   Nov-18-15 European Team Championship (2015) (replies)
dumbgai: The crazy thing about the Norwegian team is that they're still hanging in there in spite of Carlsen. Hammer and Tari are carrying that team so far.
   Nov-18-15 Carlsen vs Pelletier, 2015 (replies)
dumbgai: Carlsen's performance rating so far in this tournament is 2365. Let that sink in for a moment.
   Nov-17-15 Fabiano Caruana
dumbgai: He won the blitz portion of the match with Naka. Perhaps a bit underrated at 2665.
   Nov-17-15 Yifan Hou
dumbgai: Look at the concentration!

dumbgai: <denopac> Yes, but that's the same as using traditional scoring, plus "number of wins" as the tiebreak. "Football scoring" is useless with so few rounds and so few players - it ends up being nothing more than tiebreaker.
   Oct-28-15 Ding Liren vs A Giri, 2015 (replies)
dumbgai: What a game! Props to both players, Giri for pushing with black and Ding for defending tenaciously.
   Oct-27-15 W So vs Ding Liren, 2015 (replies)
dumbgai: Dang, Ding got to play a novelty in his favorite opening and still lost. Props to both players, most players would have been crushed playing either side here. Black played imaginatively and got a nice attack, and white had to play very precisely to fend off the attack and turn the ...
   Oct-16-15 M Muzychuk vs Yifan Hou, 2015 (replies)
dumbgai: <If she limits Hou's win to a +2 score or less> That would already be the best score that anyone has scored against Hou in a WCh match. Not counting the KO final that Kosteniuk won.
   Oct-16-15 World Blitz Championship (2015) (replies)
dumbgai: Carlsen and Naka switch #1 and #2 rankings in both the rapid and blitz.
   Oct-15-15 Women's Grand Prix Monte Carlo (2015) (replies)
dumbgai: Agree with <waustad>. Very useful. By the way, one of the following is a duplicate game: N Dzagnidze vs N Pogonina, 2015 N Dzagnidze vs N Pogonina, 2015
